  • Girl, close your eyes
    Let that rhythm get into you
    Don't try to fight it
    There ain't nothing that you can do
    Relax your mind
    Lay back and groove with mine
    You gotta feel that heat
    And we can ride the boogie
    Share that beat of love

    I want to rock with you (all night)
    Dance you into day (sunlight)
    I want to rock with you (all night)
    Rock the night away

    Out on the floor
    There ain't nobody there but us
    Girl when you dance
    There's a magic that must be love
    Just take it slow
    'Cause we got so far to go
    You gotta feel that heat
    And we can ride the boogie
    Share that beat of love

    I want to rock with you (all night)
    Dance you into day (sunlight)
    I want to rock with you (all night)
    Rock the night away

    And when the groove is dead and gone (yeah)
    You know that love survives
    So we can rock forever, on

    I want to rock with you
    I want to groove with you

    I want to rock (all night) with you girl (sunlight)
    Rock with you, rock with you girl (yeah) (all night)
    Dance the night away

    I want to rock with you (yeah) (all night)
    Rock you into day (sunlight)
    I want to rock with you (all night)
    Rock the night away

    Feel the heat feel the heat
    Rock you into day (sunlight)
    I want to rock-rock the night away Writer/s: Rodney Lynn Temperton

    #6. Send One Your Love by Stevie Wonder
    #7. We Don't Talk Anymore by Cliff Richard.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhDefinitely one of Michael's best. Upbeat and innocently sensual. This was Michael's coming of age album.
  • Katie from Vienna, AustriaBack in the day, when your date played that song you knew what he wanted (and hopefully enjoyed the thought, too). We perfectly understood what it's about - believe me, it's not dancing...
  • Mike from Kumamoto, JapanI have to agree with Love 105 fm, and I think "Off The Wall" is a very underrated album. It has a great atmosphere to it and Rod Temperton contributed greatly, along with Quincy Jones' nicely balanced production. I also like the simple but inspired drum intro to this song.
  • David from Birmingham, AlIncredible but true: songwriter Rod Temperton first pitched this song (and "Off The Wall") to Karen Carpenter. She turned them down. Then, he took them to Quincy Jones, who delivered them to Michael. Can you imagine the Carpenters doing "Rock With You?" It could've happened....
  • Aliyah from Manchester, United Kingdommjs hotness is unblvable in mostly all of his videos, and he doesnt even know he does it! he looks so cute in that sparkly outfit and i loovvee the song so much :) rip king of music and hotness
  • Paul from Detroit, Mihis best song.. ever
  • Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, MiI love the video to this,with the song,hard to believe Michael Jackson is gone.
  • Kevin from Mobile, AlThe last great disco song. I think this song actually killed Disco. After "Off The Wall" what more can you say or do in that genre?
  • Kevin from Mobile, AlMy favorite song of all time. The opening drums sound like a Mardi Gras band. This song is super smooth and it ages well. This and Human Nature.
  • Shauna from Atlatna, GaThis is an extremely sexy song. and MJ had a way of leaving the lyrics open to whatever the listener wanted. Rock with you could be sex or dancing. :)
  • Vanessa from Long Island, NyThis is my favorite song from Michael Jackson. It has a funky disco feeling to it.
  • Angelica from Boynton, Flin rememberance of michael jackson im going to have my husband tattoo "BOOGIE" right above or on his private. cause this is one of my all time favorite songs by michael.and he says "when you feel the heat, and we gonna ride the boogie, share that beat of love.... I want to rock with you!! All nite." i want to ride the boogie lol rip michael jackson your the greatest!!
  • Claire from Miller's, MdI cant believe that poor Michael iz gone. He had so much talent. He could dance so awsomely.
  • Catron from Memphis, Tni love this song and i love micheal jackson is one of my favorite singers
  • Love 105 Fm from Minneapolis, MnAn amazing track from Michael Jackson.
    Off The Wall is easily his best solo album.
  • Jeremiah from Philadelphia, Vtthis song is one of jackson's best song's.
  • Benjy from Bonn, Germanythe video is one of the best ever!!
  • Lala from Anywhere, Mtomg have u guys seem this video. one word- INSANE!!!! waaaaaayyyy too many sparkles. but i still am in love with this song!!!!
  • Sarah Floyd from Bloomingdale, Ili have the song i think and i have the video i like them both. i like this song because its about love. and i want love and peace in this world like michael jackson does. and i dont want war any more just for nothing and i think war is so stupid.
